Join us on a World Marathon Majors Qualifying Race!

Hosted at the magnificent Pembrey Country Park in Carmarthenshire this race showcases the best of coast and country on a route that covers both the half and full marathon distance.  

  This is a race for everyone, so whether you love inspiring green spaces or are a sucker for coastal views, then you’ll run happy, as this has it all!

Boasting a maximum elevation of only 18 metres and an overall gain of 110 metres for the full marathon distance, this race offers a superb opportunity to achieve your personal best!

It’s the perfect spring race that is flat, friendly, and great for first-timers or PB chasers!

The Courses

The 2Wish Great Welsh Marathon Events will return on Sunday 17th March 2024 at 9am from Pembrey Country Park. Both races start within the National Closed Road Cycle Circuit, housed in award-winning Pembrey Country Park. Participants will enjoy running through the gorgeous green space and woodland of the park before heading out on to the magnificent Millennium Coastal Path. The half marathon runners turn in the coastal village of Pwll and head back towards the finish at Pembrey, whilst marathon runners will continue along the path through North Dock. Next, the runners will pass the Machynys Golf Club, which was the first Nicklaus designed golf course in Wales, and host to the European WPGA Championship.
